“The perfect man wasn’t perfect”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Avid Reader
Most romance stories follow a strict formula for plot development. This author cleverly twisted the rules to suit the characters, and did so in a way that was captivating and enjoyable. The perfect man wasn’t perfect, and the woman who needed him was kind as she explained and cared for him along the way. The characters grew as the story progressed, making the voyage with them a pleasant one.
Whimsy was allowed here and there, in an enchanting way that the readers could understand and enjoy, such as the employment of the character Raisy. Still, it was easy to suspend reality and enjoy the atmosphere the author created. I found myself arranging my day so that I could read longer, not wanting to put the book down until it was finished.
